    Draft picks have become way more valuable in the last few years than they've ever been in the NFL. We now live in an era where Brett Favre is dealt for a 3 and Randy Moss was dealt by Oakland for a 4.

    As a result, I don't think you can expect anything higher than a 3 for a guy who's never started or even played all that many meaningful snaps in a regular season NFL game. Sure, he's promising, and he looks great during the preseason, but a team isn't going to give you much more than a 3 for someone as inexperienced and untested as Flynn is.

    I agree. Flynn looks like he is a legit big boy league QB eventually. Another good choice by TT and crew.

    I honestly havent understood the hype on Flynn... He has never really impressed me, but there has always been a buzz about him. Maybe its just me not seeing it, but in our pre season games and when he played nearly the entire 4th quarter against the Cowboys, he didnt look close to an NFL level QB.. Just my opinion though

    If you want to be technical, all Hasselbeck was worth was seven spots in the first round. Seattle threw in a 3rd round pick and GB threw in one or two 7th round picks.

    Keep him!!! Investing in developmental QBs is like investing in a wise future! We need a good backup that we can depend on. If they trade him, for the love of God, don't trade him within the division.

    I understand that, but the way our #1 dominated their #1, Manning was P.O'ed, so they kept their #1's out after we pulled ours, and we still stuck it to them. Isn't that what preseason is for, to evaluate the guys that sit behind our #1's? Or have I got this totally wrong?
